I love this story! Tom and Liv each have a rule or two that they're breaking but the reward outweighs the risk. Adding to that, Tom has a secret that puts it on the line. As a couple, they are adorable, hot, and a power couple that is down to earth. This story is steamy and a page turner. The characters are real, passionate, intelligent, feisty, and well-written.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. It may be a little longer than most of the other books I've read recently,

5 stars for The Rule by Maggie Cole. This is book 1 in the All In Series. This is my first time reading a book from this author but it for sure will not be my last. I would consider this book a sports, co-workers, contemporary romance. Tom is an all-star basketball player who also has lots of different businesses, he also has lots of secrets. Tom has been watching Olivia/Liv ‘s PR firm and wants to hire her. However, Tom is afraid if he goes neat her he wont be able to stop himself for going for ...more

First book I have had the chance to read from Maggie. She gained a fan with this one. I will be reading more from her. This one is full of some suspense, hotness, steamy sex, great storyline and amazing characters. Everything you want in a great book. I absolutely loved it from beginning to end. This storyline was not only interesting but at some points intense with where it was going. Liv runs quite the PR firm. She is great at what she does and knows how to please a client. She has one rule ...more

Rules!!!

Let me just start off with what I expected from The Rule.. I a topical sports romance.... what I got was so much better! Tom’s a basketball player so there is a sport theme but he’s so much more.

This story has everything Drama, Mystery, Crazy Chemistry, and at some points terrifying. An amazing story to start off the All In Series!!

Olivia White is a savvy businesswoman who owns her own PR Firm. When working with the rich and powerful she has a Rule about dating clients. That is until Tom

This book is so good. I absolutely love the way that the story is told throughout from each characters perspective, and that they slightly overlap. The writing is witty and clever. Olivia immediately comes across as a strong, steadfast and hardworking professional. Tom immediately comes across as an intelligent business man as well as a successful athlete with beauty and brains, but is hiding something. Something big. The story evolves as their hot and heavy love story unfolds. The characters

I enjoyed 97% of this book. I don’t give three stars lightly. It is of my opinion that if you’re going to include attempted rape scenes not once but twice than you should address them and the effects they have on women and the relationship more. The author talked 3 sentences through out the book about how horrible and what an impact the first attempt was and how the Heroine was struggling to deal with it. Then it happened to the heroine again going even further than the first time and it was all ...more

lies always come out

Liv and Tom live life in front of the media. Liv by controlling it and running what they see. Tom because he is in his prime in Pro basketball and he is filthy rich. they are the power couple to watch. One has a tragic past that is haunting them.
This is a very well written story with great characters. Tom gets off to a rocky start for me as he is overbearing and clingy but you understand why as time goes on. You learn Liv is just a normal woman with the same insecurities as

She has just one rule....................Will it be followed or shattered to pieces

The Rule is the debut book by new author Maggie Cole and I became immersed in the story of Liv and Tom. The author has done a wonderful job of writing a well developed story-line with great characters that have depth and that are relatable. Liv and Tom have more than a little sizzling chemistry and are strongly drawn to each other, even while they try to fight it.
I look forward to reading more books by this author

This book is hot, hot, hot!!! Maggie Cole, where have you been hiding? I finished this book in two days! Such an easy and satisfying read.
Cozy up by a fire (near a bear rug if possible) and let this fantasy sweep you away. I hope they make this into a feature film, its always fun to see if characters match up to my imagination. So grateful I received an advanced copy of this book, cant wait for the next book in this series.

Author Maggie Cole knows how to pull the reader in and give her an escape from reality. The Rule is a spicy, sassy book where we meet Liv and Tom. Their steamy romance begins as Liv agrees to learn more about Tom's businesses so that she can run the best-ever PR team for him. If you love steamy, erotica, this is a story for you.

An interesting and passionate book one in the All In series! The story-line is well written, relatable, emotionally deep, funny, and enjoyable. A fast pace page turner with drama, ups and downs, and off the charts chemistry! The characters are well developed, likeable, and are really great together. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. Definitely recommended.

This book was incredible! Stayed up until 4am to finish reading it - could not put the book down. Talk about all the feels! Steamy, funny, heartbreaking and inspiring are just a few adjectives to begin to describe this story. The characters are so well developed they draw the reader into their story. I cannot wait for the rest of the books in this new series. Highly recommend.

Maggie Cole’s introductory novel weaves together a steamy tale featuring smart writing, well developed main characters and enough twists and turns to keep you turning the page. I was up until 3AM reading it and can’t wait for the next book in the series to be released. Maggie Cole’s storytelling is imaginative and thoroughly enjoyable; she shows a lot of promise and is one to watch.

I love both Tom and Olivia, but Tom was my favorite. What I like most about this story is the incredible and immediate sparks that fly between them. I like the storyline. I like the writing. I like the interaction between them. The secondary characters are fun and help to move the story along.
